    Hi, I recently got an iPad 2 for my birthday. I have been having problems with my iPad turning off. When I've finished using it and put the iPad down. After it has not been used for about 15 minutes it turns itself off. Then I have to hold down the circle button and the top button down to turn back on.
    Is anyone else having this issue? Is there something in the settings I have to change to automatically puts the iPad to sleep.
    Please help

    Thank you very much for replying so quickly. I will get back to you and let you know how I go.
    So it shouldn't turn off completely now? Because the screen would go black and then I would have to hold both buttons down until an the little apple icon come up. I hope I've made sense.
    Regards Jacqui

    That's okay, no not just going to sleep. It completely turns itself off. Then I have to hold both buttons down for at least 10-20 seconds to turn it back on..
